Five day week

From Pelita

A number of ministries have started to apply the new five-day working week with varying time schedules. Some offices start at 7.00 a.m. and finish at 3.00 p.m. Other ministries open at 8.00 a.m. and close at 4.30 p.m., except on Fridays when they close at 5.00 p.m. Each office is trying to suit the interest of its employees. Many employees can manage this new system because public transportation is readily available.

But those who live far away from Jakarta like Tangerang, Bogor, Bekasi, Depok, etc. and leave their offices after 4.30 p.m. are experiencing problems with transportation.

Therefore I suggest that all offices follow the same time schedule.
